Bad Company! Sadiq Khan aide is a gun slinging homophobe who tweets about being a hitman

He’s got some terrific friends!  Now the London Standard reveals that one of Sadiq Khan’s aides is a gun slinging homophobe, who jokes about shooting people.  The Standard reported:  “An aide to Labour mayoral candidate Sadiq Khan resigned today after the Evening Standard found pictures of him brandishing a gun and claiming he could be a hired “hitman”.Untitled-1.jpgShueb Salar posted a video online of himself with a rifle and bragged about spending a weekend “shooting stuff with real guns, knives, crossbows and bow and arrows”.

He added the joke comments #I’mASecretHitman and #ShoutMeIfYouWantMeToTakeCareOfSomeone and #I’llMakeItLookLikeAnAccident.

Sadiq Khan suspended his Commons-based speechwriter afterThe Mail on Sunday discovered messages in which the aide laughed about seeing homosexuals being abused in public, and made reference to ‘hoes’ and ‘f***ing faggots’ – on a Twitter feed followed by the Labour mayoral hopeful’.

Theresa May has said Khan lacked “judgment” for attending at least four meetings organised by Stop Political Terror, a group supported by Anwar al-Awlaki.

The Yemeni-American Imam preached to three 9/11 hijackers and was dubbed “the bin Laden of the internet” for his online videos that helped recruit terrorists. He was killed in a US drone strike in 2011.”

Sadiq Khan has justified his action by saying  he had gone to the events only to campaign to stop Babar Ahmad, a Tooting contemporary, being extradited to America. Ahmad later pleaded guilty to “conspiracy and providing material to support terrorism”. He called Cage a “vile organisation”.   The meetings came when Khan was Labour’s candidate in Tooting before the 2005 general election.

The Sunday Times reports: “Stop Police Terror, founded in 2003, changed its name to Stop Political Terror in September 2004. On August 8, 2004, Khan attended a conference alongside Adnan Siddiqui, who helped run the group and is now a prominent member of Cage, and Makbool Javaid, who signed a fatwa in 1998 calling for a “full-scale war of jihad” against Britain.”

Update:  I am horrified to read Shueb Shilar has tweeted the Lee Rigby murder was faked.  Utterly appalling.Lee Rigby“He posted on May 23, 2013 – a day after the killing of the off-duty soldier by two Islamic extremists – a link to a YouTube video and the comment: “I had a feeling the Woolwich killing was probably fake.”  via London Standard.

In fairness to Sadiq Khan, please read the information on all the links.

This all begs the question is a man who hobnobs with such dubious company, and crucially, avoids scrutiny, a fit candidate to run for Mayor of London?

  1. The gun stuff hemight slide out, it was a silly joke, the homophobic stuff if bad, but saying what he did about Lee Rigby absolutely unforgiveable.
